Our name was inspired by the dichotomy between the two definitions of Calliope. The first, the Ancient Greek goddess Calliope is our muse for eloquent speech and poetry, something we believe leads to quality open dialogue and feeds into the educational basis of our server. The second definition, to be "calliopean", or to resemble a "calliope" -- a musical instrument with a loud and piercing profile. To us, being CALLIOPEAN is to be steadfast in your search for knowledge through open and charitable dialogue, yet brazen in one's quest for it
